This shelter has proven to be very popular with hikers, cycle campers, bushcraft users and others. If you use hiking poles, the main support for the shelter can be a pair linked together using a backpacking light linking section to save even more weight.
The ideal support for this is the Luxe 163X pole. which is an optional extra.
As using the backpacking light linking section
• Flysheet 40D/230T Nylon ripstop fabric with one side PU and one side siliconized • Pole: Not included • Hydrostatic Head: 2500mm • Weight: Approx 660g
Seam sealing the tent As the silicone tents are designed without seam taping, we recommend user to apply seam sealing on the outside seam of flysheet where necessary (Mainly around the crown area). Along the horizontal stitching around the vent. Down the zip and 'inside' the guy loops and top loop. (Pull apart with your fingers) Anywhere water can gather is a potential point of issue if the tent will be subjected to prolonged rainfall or a persistently wet environment.
